On the first official day of spring, three U.S. political events happened yesterday, that could be called monumental---and they involved a present, past, and future President:

1) President Obama visited the Communist Republic of Cuba, and there's no other way to say it; in the company of military dictator Raul Castro, Obama embarrassed himself and this nation:

"President Castro, I think, has pointed out that in his view making sure that everybody is getting a decent education or health care, has basic security and old age, that those things are human rights as well. I personally would not disagree with him," Obama said.  (link to video and text)

2) Just a few hours later, (at a political event in Spokane, Washington), former President Bill Clinton, while campaigning for his wife Hillary, described this current administration as an "awful legacy".
Bill Clinton Trashes Obama: 'Awful Legacy of the Last Eight Years'

"But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we've finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.  (link to video & text)
3) Finally, just when the media and political pundits began screaming Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump needed to act "more presidential", the man stepped up to the podium at AIPAC and hit it out of the park---garnering more standing ovations from the Jewish community leaders than the rest of the speakers, combined.  Here's a few excerpts from Mr. Trump's speech:
"I didn’t come here tonight to pander to you about Israel. That’s what politicians do: all talk, no action. I came here to speak to you about where I stand on the future of American relations with our strategic ally, our unbreakable friendship, and our cultural brother, the only democracy in the Middle East, the State of Israel." 
"It’s not up the United Nations to impose a solution. The parties must negotiate a resolution themselves. The United States can be useful as a facilitator of negotiations, but no one should be telling Israel it must abide by some agreement made by others thousands of miles away that don’t even really know what’s happening." 
"When I’m president, believe me, I will veto any attempt by the UN to impose its will on the Jewish state." 
"When I become President, the days of treating Israel like a second-class citizen will end on Day One." 
"You see, what President Obama gets wrong about deal making is that he constantly applies pressure to our friends and rewards our enemies. That pattern, practiced by the President and his administration, including former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has repeated itself over and over and has done nothing but embolden those who hate America. We saw that with releasing $150 billion to Iran in the hope that they would magically join the world community – It’s the same with Israel and Palestine." 
"We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem – and we will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel." 
"The Palestinians must come to the table knowing that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable. They must come to the table willing and able to stop the terror being committed on a daily basis against Israel and they must come to the table willing to accept that Israel is a Jewish State and it will forever exist as a Jewish State."  (link to video and text)
To summarize: current president Barack Obama listened to a brutal dictator admonish this nation for its treatment of Cuba and agreed with the S.O.B.

Former President Bill Clinton called the last eight years of this current administration "an awful legacy" while pretending his wife had nothing to do with the policies carried out during her tenure as the Secretary of State under Mr. Obama's directions.

And, finally, our potential future President, Donald Trump, did not mince words, or politically pander to the folks at AIPAC, while pointing out the dismal failures of previous administrations, and insisting his policies on the issue of Israel will be met from a position of strength---not by the weaknesses of past leadership that has put the Jewish nation in jeopardy.

It goes without saying, Mr. Trump's speech was very Presidential.
